  • We cannot thank you enough! We had the most wonderful time, perhaps the best vacation we’ve ever had as a family.
    All 4 of us thought the tour with Scott (from Inverness Tours) was incredible. It did wind up being a private day with just the four of us which was a real treat, and I am so glad it worked out that way. My husband and I loved it — the teenagers (who say they don’t like history) LOVED “all the stories” (which of course IS history.)
    We are all getting our feet back under us slowly, but look at photos or talk about our trip almost daily. Thank you again for everything, you helped get us organized and your help with the timing was wonderful, we couldn’t have done it without you!

  • We are delighted with the tour and would recommend it to anyone. Five stars!

  • I can't believe all that you are doing. You amaze me! Thank you for all your great information and constant watching out for us.
    I tell everyone I know about you and your company. I only hope some will heed our suggestions.

  • "I should have added that the key thing you offered was personal communication, care and support!"

  • "Thanks as ever- we are having a great time and you are getting high marks from everyone!"

  • "You really are good at this and clearly this is your passion. Made me want to hop on a plane straight away."

  • "Fabulous information you have supplied. Thank you."

  • From a client who brought is family to the US: "We would like to thank you for the itinerary you had put together for us. Everything went off very well. The kids too had a great time. Hotels and the tours were great.
    Special mention on the Spiderman show which was fantastic - the seats were a great selection.
    We would be happy to recommend you to any of our friends planning a trip to the US.
    Many people were amazed that we had managed to cover the depth and breadth of the vast US with your help.

    It was time well spent planning with you."
